-- he's less monty hall, more monti burns to extract pain on the republicans. >> stephanie: so the issue that he ran and won on -- >> well, i think what's so frustrating for republicans is the last time we had some of these dopey countdown to the clock of armageddon was with the debt deal. and republicans were in a much stronger position for better or for worse just because they were willing to you know, blow up the whole debt deal, et cetera. so i think you know, they wish it was like that. they wished -- when that unfolded, obama was taking hit after hit. he did not have the leverage. he obviously hadn't just won an election. his approval ratings were going in the tank. so they're upset that this isn't a rerun. they're upset that obama seems to be holding a lot of the cards. they're upset the republicans seem weak and boehner is divided and the republican party. so a lot of this complaint like we heard from ducey is him saying boy we want the debt deal again. we want it where obama was on the run and taking hi
